Get ready Wyoming!

LIFT is back for the 5th Annual Conference!

We’re here to Lead, Inspire, Fulfill and do it all Together!

It’s gonna be great!…

 

ONE DAY EVENT FOR WYOMING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS PROMOTING LEADERSHIP AND OPPORTUNITY IN OUR YOUNG PEOPLE FOR WYOMING’S FUTURE.

THE LIFT EVENT

Is a platform designed to engage, entice, and educate our up-and-coming young professionals about what Wyoming has to offer! LIFT Wyoming was born in 2018 out of SHEER determination to take a stand in shaping the perspective of Wyoming’s high school students toward the amazing opportunities Wyoming has to offer as young professionals. This, along with instilling and modeling leadership, and teaching our Wyoming kids they have the POWER and ABILITY to shape their own futures and the future of our great state is what is at the heart of LIFT Wyoming.

 

Join us for an amazing opportunity to hear from Wyoming’s leaders from across the state. We are so excited to see you all there! It’s Gonna Be Great!

Starting with her interaction with the President of the United States in 3rd grade, to managing a Hilton hotel at 23 years of age, to becoming a director at a hospital, to owning her own business, to now overseeing the Child Development Center that serves over 600 children per year with 111 staff members, every interaction and every position has made Alisha who she is today!

After 10 years in Boise ID., Alisha returned to Wyoming to start a family and finish out her career. Wyoming is home and offers so much more than the big city life! Alisha will leave you with the one element that will make you successful and create a craving to lead!
